Fanfest 2017 Groupings
« on: July 05, 2017, 05:00:57 pm »
Currently Tom is in the process of formulating 'the groupings' that will
take the stage for our 'get this' NINTH STRAIGHT YEAR honoring the
Ventures.

In connection with that, our little 'dynamo' (10) year old drummer,
Danny Roberts, hailing from Paint Lick, Kentucky will be
front & center with his own band this time around.   

Let's help surround him with our finest players for the following songs:

BLACK SAND BEACH- John & Matthew Stapleton
GHOST RIDERS- Kanad & Saugata Ghose
TRAMBONE- Bob Spalding, John Stapleton
HOUSE OF THE RING SUN- Kanad & Saugata Ghose
AME NO MIDOSUJI- Walt Stagner, Jim Bryant
BLUE MOON- Jeff & Grant Green
MR. MOTO- Walt Stagner, Jim Bryant
GREEN ONIONS- Bob Spalding, Jim Bryant
MEET MR. CALLAHAN- Ken Arnold, Walt Stagner
HOME- Bob Spalding, Jim Bryant
NIGHT TRAIN (WDR '64 LP version) Kanad & Saugata Ghose

Big John Magee from Indianapolis, Indiana has agreed to handle bass
guitar duties throughout the set.

Thanks, I've revised Danny's set list.
If you can provide any additional info that might help players, let me know.

Dan isn't hard set on these tunes. If someone wants to make a suggestion for a different tune, he has plenty of time to learn it (assuming he doesn't already know it). He just wants to play with other musicians that love The Ventures.

Maria- Tom here.   Thanx for gettin' back to Walt
with the 'Night Train' clarification.   We 'pretty
much' at this point, have to stick to Danny's 'ten'
song set 'cause I've been assigning the lead parts.
Still not sure who will be playing bass or rhythm to
each song but am making 'good progress' filling out
his band.
